Delta Air Lines will start a new route to Seoul (Incheon), South Korea from its Minneapolis/St. Paul hub beginning next year in partnership with joint venture partner Korean Air.

Delta will utilize newly refreshed 777-200ER aircraft with all new cabins.  As part of Delta’s more than $100 million 777 refurbishment program, these aircraft will be equipped with 28 of our award-winning Delta One suites with a full height door, 18-inch high-resolution entertainment screens, memory foam seats, espresso coffee service and state-of-the-art design with customizable in-suite lighting. The new Delta Premium Select cabin seats 48 with elevated personal service, plated meals, 13.3-inch seat back screens and more space to stretch out with recliner seat rows 38 inches apart.  The 220 all-new Main Cabin seats are the widest in the Delta international fleet in a 9-abreast configuration furnished with personal screens, unlimited premium entertainment and complimentary earbuds. The new cabins all enjoy in-seat USB and 110V power ports, inflight WiFi and new dynamic LED lighting that varies by phase of flight fostering a relaxing, refreshing environment onboard.

As of June 1, Delta flights departing Korea feature menus in all cabins curated by Michelin two-star Chef Kwon Woo Joong, who will also consult on menu design with our U.S. kitchens.

The service will be Delta’s second trans-Pacific nonstop flight from its MSP hub, complementing existing service to Tokyo-Haneda, where Delta also intends to deploy the refurbished 777-200ER aircraft in 2019.

Schedule details of this new service will be announced at a later date.
